Blu is Really Fast!!!
Date posted on June 24, 2017
Carmona Race Track was the venue for the launch of the all-new Yamaha R15 Version 3. The event was flocked by hundreds who wanted to have the first-hand experience in driving this new beast. This was highlighted with an All Star Race featuring of 15 of the top riders in the country. With blue as the team color, this color has proven that it is worthy of its tagline “Blu is Fast”.
